About the Movie

By the director of Museum Hours. Counting's fifteen linked chapters conjoin city symphony, diary film, and personal/political essay to build a vivid portrait of contemporary life. Shot in locations including Russia, Istanbul, and New York City, its subjects range from naturally occurring Moscow street theater to NSA spying to the dismantling of Brooklyn landmarks. In Cohen’s 30 year exploration of documentary as a path of open inquiry, the film is perhaps his most personal reckoning.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: As Mr. Cohen shifts from one space and time to the next in "Counting," the filmmaker - who has long been "writing" from the world of appearances with his camera - expresses the melancholy and longing embedded in that impossibility. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Jul 30, 2015

Fresh: This is the kind of contemplative cinematheque piece that washes pleasurably over you, inviting the viewer to tune in or out, to free-associate or locate the subtle connections and recurring themes. – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 27, 2015

Fresh: A luminous jumble, Jem Cohen's latest experiment in non-narrative urban portraiture captures, in its beauty and bad moods and consistent epiphanies, many contradictory truths of city life itself. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Jul 28, 2015

Rotten: The poetic pretenses are compounded by a sledgehammer insistence on elusive and irreducible moments as inherently beautiful. – Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine, Jul 27, 2015
